This is what things look like on my screenshot - it seems a lot darker isn't it?




Edit: oops, a tad wide :)

Well done on the races guys.  Good work Aiman for holding Darren off in the Cobra and second in the 458.  I look forward to watching the replays, and hopefully next time being able to take part.  Cheers.

pretty intense racing lol qaulity field!

race1: i cant get the cobra to work my car was horrid to drive lol and then on lap 2 i hit a spun car and that set me back to 14th and then my wheel fell off the table so 15th is where i ended up.

Race 2: i had good pace to challenge the leaders but just couldnt use it being 5th i thought a 58.3 would put me further up haha. Was a close race between the top 5 until the last 3 laps we spread a bit due to tyres i guess, but was a good pressure race 5th is where i stayed.
do you even motorsports?

  Never thought I'd be be saying it's disappointing to see so much ARSE!
quite a few FAT ARSEs there too. (Fast Alien Team).  Glad it went down well and you guys let our guests have a win? We where the hosts right?Seriously, Grats to the winners! Looks like there was some close racing.

  I guess XGN can put the bulk of the blame on Marty, for not going through his pre-game check list to make sure his rig was ready.
Gratulin? what happened? Looks like you had the obligatory crash but didn't make it to 10th?

Best part was seeing the screen shots of the skins!

The skins were great, especially the Hello Kitty pitcrew.

I did read a chat message by one of the ARSE guys in qualy for the first race saying he was getting stuttering from someone messaging him on steam also. At that point I wasnt getting much stutter but also assumed the notification settings were all off but I really didnt have much more pace in the Cobra so it really didnt cost me much there.

In the GT2 it got worse and so made it hard to concentrate and the other guys were all pretty quick so having bad fps issues really made it hard til it got unplayable and I would have just been a hazard on track.

Here are a few screens from the nite though I altered time of day a little in the shots with photo mode.

Congratulations to both XGN and AustraliaRSE, great idea well executed.
Nice work again Wally and thanks for the replays, will be making time to view them this evening.
The skins from both teams certainly added to the event, and looking at the shot of the XGN Cobra sandwiched between the AustraliaRSE cars is a HOOT! I don't know the outcome of the 3 wide, but I'll bet they may been distracted!

Well Marty, I don't think you let the team down, in fact how could that be when you and the whole team, driving the now famous skins of Dick's in public! you need to be exulted! :)

The screenshots are great value.

It's a very pretty game!!
Almost too pretty. Needs weathering up. To be stupidly over critical, the marshals and pit crew look flat. Pit crews look like they are hovering off the ground. Even though they are smartly dressed!

I notice a lot of green cars in front in a lot of these screen shots... Maybe pink isn't as fast as we hoped??

LOL!

Not to mention; saving != uploading

(I've got the replays, too, just not uploaded anywhere)

Saving is the tricky part to remember, not uploading.
